Free Sports Equipment for Children with a Physical Disability or Visual Impairment

Everyone Plays Kit #1
Everyone Plays Kit #1 Lower Limb Disability

Adaptive Sports Ohio is providing Everyone Plays Kits to children in grades K-6 with a physical disability or visual impairment. 

Often children with physical disabilities and visual impairments are sidelined in their communities. Instead of being an active participant at recess or on the playground, they stand by and watch as their peers run, swing, jump, and play.  Adaptive Sports Ohio believes that all children have the universal right to be given a chance to play and have created the Everyone Plays Kit.  Now, children with physical disabilities and visual impairments will be in the game!

Everyone Plays is a toolkit filled with sports equipment and activity cards designed to improve the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of children with a disability. Children who receive a kit are also eligible to enroll in the Everyone Plays mentoring program.

  • Social/Emotional Benefits
    • Opportunity for children to be included in sport and play with their peers.
    • Paired with a mentor who has a disability.
  • Physical Benefits
    • A chance to be physically active despite having a disability.
    • Activities are designed for different skill levels.
    • Introduction to adaptive sport programs in the community.
